. >> greta: did the hearing answer the burning question, why can't the obama administration get its story straight? former u.n. ambassador john bolton is here. so, are you satisfied? >> no, look, the administration made up its mind what the reality was, whether it was engagedin a coverup, whether it was ideology that dominated the view, whether it was incompetence, at this point, we don't know the answer to that. but we know one thing, unmistakeably. they were flatly wrong. they got it wrong before the attack, they got it wrong after the attack. they are getting it wrong now. so we psychoanalyze them all we want, but this is a demonstration, these people cannot be left in the same room with national security. >> greta: you say they are getting wrong, they have got it wrong, but it's more than that. why are they still dog it? why are they still trying to sell us that? jay carney today, in the statements he made today, initial assessment and the immediate aftermath of the attack in benghazi were made, it was a government-wide assessment that the foundation of what ambassador rice said, was

a gaffe omatic to being a laugh omatic. >> the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own now we have them in place because of congress, they say the military option is on the table but not being viewed as credible so they stopped viewing nuclear weapons. >> how do you do it so quickly? you both saw benjamin netanyahu. >> we can debate the time line. whether it's that short of time or longer. i agree it's probably longer. number two, thank heavens we had these sanctions in place. it's in spite of their opposition. >> oh, god. >> laura: this was odd. even learnt guys -- elevate left of center. found the constant smirking, smiling and constant interrupting off-putting. in your face debate strategy didn't wear so well and perhaps distracted from some of the stronger substantive points. speaking of substance, joe biden told a number of big whoppers last night but i'm going to stick to three of them. first, on why there wasn't adequate security in place on 9/11 in benghazi. >> we weren't told they wanted more security there we did not know

attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and paul ryan accusing the obama administration of not properly protecting u.s. personnel. >> what we should not be doing is rejecting claims for calls for more security in our barracks, in our marine. we need marines in benghazi when the commander on the ground says we need more forces for security. there were requests for extra security. those requests were not honored. >> reporter: vice president biden called the deaths a tragedy but he then claimed that the obama administration did not know that ambassador stevens and other personnel on the ground had been asking for more security help. >> we weren't told they wanted more security there. we did not know they wanted more security. and, by the way, at the time we were told exactly -- we said exactly what the intelligence community told us that they knew. that was the assessment. >> reporter: it was an assessment, but the state department did know in real time from videos that requests for more security and resources had been made and were turned down. a state department official acknowledged tes

of the "new york times"? it wouldn't have made the obama administration look bad. if the bush administration, like eric nordstrom he would have been on every talk show being interviewed. instead you have to go to power line and national review and jennifer rubin to find out what he had to say. >> jon: do you agree with that? if our diplomats had been killed overseas it would have been leading the news for weeks? >> i think it's a news story and i think it was a news story. the question is, why wasn't it on the front page of certain papers? it's all over the news. in fact it was the lead question at the vice presidential debate. what strikes me is that the media is or are part of a political structure in the midst of a campaign. and the campaign for the romney team is very clear they see a vulnerability on obama's parted on foreign policy. they are using this story in particular and the media has to now decide what is the political attack, what it's at legitimate attack? >> if the obama campaign is trying to minimize the blow back from this, are the media helping them do this? >> duh -- yes,
of malarky. >> reporter: ryan said the obama administration allowed iran to get closer to obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> it's because this administration has no credibility on the issue. >> these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions. >> reporter: president obama was criticized for being too passive in last week's debate. vice president biden seemed determined not to make that same mistake. >> but it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who said 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. >> they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. >> reporter: ryan said the obama administration has failed the middle class. >> we're going in the wrong direction. look at where we are. the economy is barely limping along. >> reporter: side by side at the same table, biden and ryan were not shy about directly engaging each other, sometimes with harsh attacks, sometimes with humor. >> i think the vice president very well knows that some times the words don't come out of your mouth the r

he's doing now. >> greta: you thought the obama administration's response couldn't get any worse you would be wrong. the obama campaign just made things really bad. how? what the deputy champagne manager stephanie cutter blaming governor romney for turning tragedy into politics. >> we're here in a debate. and i hope we get to talk about the debate. the eastbound entire reason this has become the political topic it is because of mitt romney and paul ryan. it's a big part of the stump speech. it's reckless and irresponsible. >> the romney campaign says the obama campaign is wrong. in a statement the campaign said the reason it is an issue because for the first time since 1979 an american ambassador was assassinated and president obama's strategy is failing. former senior advisor to president reagan joins us. your thoughts about what stephanie cutter said? >> i think it's nonsense. this was the worst terrorist attack since september 11th. gangs of dozens of men with ak 47s and rocket propelled grenades and mortarred attacked and murdered ambassador, then a safe house, some guys got away
, situation here where the obama administration blew it. and are actually accusing the administration of misleading the public. the obama administration denies that. hindsight is 20/20. but there's no doubt about it. there were requests they didn't feel safe. they needed more. let's face it. the facts play out that they had, very good suspicion and they were right. >> and this was not a good time for the hearing, for the obama administration. >> no. >> especially 20-something days away from the election. >> got that right. >> tough. >>> talk about lawyers and jerry sandusky, they say they will fight the attempts to take away his penn state pension. the retirement pension told sandusky will no longer receive $4,900 monthly check. in light of his conviction on child sex charges. sandusky received a total of $900,000 in pension payments between his retirement in 1999 and last month. >> wow. >> that's -- that's a sweet retirement deal. >> $900,000. >> that's a lot. wow. >> apparently the decision rests on analysis that he remained a de facto employee of penn state in the years after his 1

for a moment now. last night vice president biden said the obama administration was not told of requests for more security in the run-up to the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. republicans pounced on that claim pointing to testimony the day before from the state department officials that said there had been earlier requests for more security staffing. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more on all this. the catherine. >> reporter: good morning. on libya the vice president blamed the intelligence community for bad assessments that informed the administration public and controversyal statements about the attack and suggested the white house was unaware for more requests on the ground in libya. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. by the way, at the time we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community towed us. that they knew. that was the assessment. and as the intelligence community changed their view, we made it clear they changed their view. that's
